OVO Sound boss Drake is going to make it a memorable 2018. New music from the Canadian hip-hop star has surfaced online.
A couple fresh tracks have started to make their rounds across social media since New Year’s Eve.
It’s been about 3 months since we got new Drake music. We heard ‘Signs‘ in June with the ‘Freak In You’ remix and ‘No Complaints‘. For the most part, he’s staying true to his promise on ‘Do Not Disturb’ that he’d be back in 2018 for the summary of this year. But that doesn’t mean we can’t get previews of new music in the meantime. Yesterday, Landon Collins’ posted a video on his IG story with some new Drake raps in the back. It’s very possible that OBJ was playing the record in the locker room. (Hip Hop N More)
Heading into last weekend, Drake surprised fans by lyrically showing support for one-time rap foe Meek Mill on his “Family Feud” freestyle.
Weezy’s version of “Family Feud” features a long verse from Drake, which includes a demand for a salute from Donald Trump as well as support for Meek Mill. “I need my paper long, like a Milly verse/Too long, like a sentence from a Philly judge/Fuck is the point in all the beefing, when we really blood?” Drizzy raps. The initial version of D6, released on Christmas, did not contain “Family Feud.” However, Wayne let fans know there was another volume still to come. (Complex)
Recently, Meek’s Maybach Music Group boss Rick Ross saluted Drake for shouting him out during a live concert.
A day prior, a clip exploded across social media of Drake calling for Meek’s freedom.
“I see you in the adidas three stripe,” Drake told a concertgoer. “I see you got the ‘Free Meek Mill’ t-shirt. Free Meek Mill, too, man, for real.”
